2013 Kingston Family Vineyards Alazan Casablanca Valley Chile Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 115 cases, $32. The flagship Pinot Noir named after Peter Kingston’s horse in the 1950s. A limited, reserve bottling. Aged 10 months in 100% French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Clearly the most classy wine in the lineup with a highly appealing nose of penetrating fragrances including dark red stone and berry fruits and spice. Impeccably balanced and velvety in the mouth with well-managed oak seasoning and a memorable, lip smacking finish. This wine was still pumping out the goodness two days later from a previously opening and re-corked bottle. Score: 92. Reviewed July 12, 2015
